McDONALD'S MODESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 September 1912

McDONALD'S MODIESTY. At dinner in a small town in Scot land it was found that everyone had contributed to the evening's enter tainment but a certain Dr McDonald. "Come, come, Dr. McDonald." said the chairman, "we cannot let you es cape." The doctor protested that he could not sing. "My voice is altogether unmusithl, anl resembles the sound caused by the act of rubbing a brick along the panels of a door." The company- attrihuted this to the doctor's modesty. .Good singers, he was reminded, always needed a lot of pressing. "Very well," said the doctor; "if you can stand it, I will sing." Long before he had finished his au dience was uneasy. ' There was a pain fil allence as the doctor nat down, broken at length hy the voice of a candid friend at the end of the table. "Mon," he exclaimed, "your sing ing'n no up to much, but your vera city's just awfu'. You're richt aboot that brick." The Lawyer : "Are you acquainted with any of the men on the jury 7" The Witness: "Yes, sir; more than h...

THE LOVE THAT LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 September 1912

THE.LOVE THAT LIVES. Much senseless nonsense Is writtel and much more talked about the way that married life becomes wearisome and full of burdens and the way. that married.people "tire of one another." Stufd ?and nonsense! Such senti ments are not drawn from human ;na ture! It is only those unfortunate, too much-up-to-date t folk who expect :too Smuch pleasure and too little respon aelbllity In their home life, who.. try to appear what they are not, never have been, and never will be, thatlond 'fault with the conditions of marriage. It Is not consistent with laturethiatts' man' o.,womnan shpuld weary of;,one' who Is truly loved and respected.; Even-our domestic pets become more dear and are more cherished as time goes on-notwithstanding that 'their coats become mangy, the full, bright eye more blurred, and the abill ity to obey less swift. And if it is human nature to love our dulmb friends when' charm 'of appearance is gone, surely those of our own'kind are:wor thyof a like displa...

GIRLS MEN AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 September 1912

GIRLS MEN AVOID. Oh, yes, there are some girls whom some men are glad to avoid, even though they may not do so openly. Girls and women that men cannot tolerate are: Those who deprive a father and mother of comforts In order that they may be stylish and smart beyond their means.' Those who gad about with men of whom they know but little. Those who bedeck themselves with fewellery the first thing in the morn ing, as such a display suggests bad taste and a vulgar love of show. Those who adopt mannish attitudes and pose as athletic specimens of their - Those who boast of their numerous conquests and declare openly that the man does not exist whom they deem good enough to marry. Those who sit and stare a strange man out of countenance, and then com. plain that he returns the rudeness. ATTRACTIVE WOMANHOOD. No woman need be ugly. It there is a soul in her body, it has but to begin betimes to show through. From her earliest girlhood the thoughts she thinks, the feelings to which she gives ...

THE PRAISE OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 September 1912

THE PRAISE OF WOMEN. Francls I. of France once said that a court without women would be like a year without spring, and a spring without roses; and Malherbe, who was a poet, said that there are only two pretty things in the world, women and roses;- and only two dainty morsels, women and melons. Then Chateaubriand said: "Man without woman would be gross, rude and solitary, and would ignore the grace which is the smile of love. Wo man hangs around him the flowers of Ilfe, 'like those forest creepers which adorn the trunks of. oaks with their perfulned garlands." F. J. Stahl said: "The mind of wo men has every kind of relation to the diamond. It Is fine, it is'.preclous, it has a thousand fires, a thousand rays. it has facets which radiate in every direction,-it dazzles and betrays itself, even in'the shade, when therslightest opening-ls-lnade. It cannot' be shut up in the Jewel-hox; it must be seen." SFontenelle said: "Among women modesty has great advantages. It aug ments beauty, and...

THE ELOQUI?ET REPLY. 'Twas a glorious night, and two lovers sat upon the cliff-side with the eternal ocean flowing at their feet with a calmness and placidity that was almost appalling. They were looking at the stars above, and he turned to his girl, and said tenderly: "hMy darling, I don't understand what you can see in me to love me so.0, "That's what everybody nays," she replied. The silence was greater than ever.

COMPLETE SHORT STORY. HIS GOLDEN WEDDING [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 12 September 1912

UUMPI'Lllrr te SHORlT bTUiY. HIS GOLDEN WEDDING -4----- BY JOHN FLEiMING WILSON. In their haste to get the full powered steamer Colusa across from Japan to the American coast, the owners nad sent her to sea flying light, land with live hundred tona of coal instead of the thousand to which her bunkers were entitled. Ac cordingly the vessel's sides rose to I ponderous heights above the water, and her propeller blades, the engiu- 1 eer asserted, barely scraped the waves. Besides, her coal, in the hurry of its loading, had been sim ply dumped in the 'tween decks to await the leisure of the first days of the voyage for proper stowing. But there was no leisure, for the day the Goluin thrust her high-riding stem out of the Straits of Tsugarl, a win ter storm descended upon her from the east, andra terrifying stiffness made the captain understand that, in addition to his other troubles, he must immediately trim his ship, or inevitably capsize. Therefore, being a mlan of curt speech, he call...

SUCCESSFUL STOCKBREEDING [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 19 September 1912

SUCCESSFUL STOCKBREEDING How many breeders have reached that stage in the fixing of type where they are sure of what result of the mating of two animals is going to be ? None. Their business is far more complicated than that of the inventor of machinery. They must deal with that something called life, of which very little is yet known. They must he prepared to overcome inheritance. They are experimenting with something which is influenced hy the breeding for generations back, whereas the other class of inventor is benefited, rather than handicapped by what has gone before. He can use the brains of his pre decessors to good advantage to help him in his work, while the stock breeder often has first to eliminate the undesirable qualities which have resulted from previous indiscriminate breeding. Bad breeding and InIif ferent feeding have paved the way to the inevitable rain of man an stock breeder, anti the effect of one cross of inferior blood often takes years to overcome. But you sa...

THE YOUNG ORCHARD. PREPARATION OF THE SOIL FOR PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 19 September 1912

THE YOUNG ORCHARD. PREPARATION OF THI BOIL FOIE PLANTING. (By Pomona.) I will presume that the ground han been ploughed last spring and culti vated during the summer months. The question is often asked-Can I clear and plant the same season ? My reply to this is invariably No I For there are few lands on which a sum mer faInllow is not essential and no soils but what are vastly benefited by the opening up of the soil to the sweetening action of the sun, rain, and air. I do not intend dealing here with the actual work of planting, but a few words may be opportune as to the time when the operation should be performed. Climate must rule this question; if the soil is dry and warm the trees may be planted in autumn, but more often than not it will he found that when the trees are in fit condition to be received from the nursery that the soil is sodden and unfit for planting and that it is desirable to wait the coming of spring. In localities where it is usual .to plant in autumn the groun...
